Activision has announced that the classic map, Nuketown, will be arriving in Black Ops 4 in a matter of days on the PlayStation 4, marking the fourth time the map has made an appearance in a mainline Call of Duty game. The map has long been popular for its smaller and more intimate nature, keeping matches at a tight pace, as well as its macabre nuclear war setting.
The announcement was made today via Twitter, showing a Cold War-era green screen flickering with various images of the map. The tweet itself has a caption in Russian, roughly translating to “Welcome back,” before announcing in English that the map is coming to PlayStation 4 on November 13.
It isn’t known when the map will arrive to the game’s other versions on the Xbox One and PC, but traditionally exclusivity on various Call of Duty DLC and maps can go anywhere from one week to one month. Nuketown was originally announced for Black Ops 4 just before E3 as one of several older Black Ops maps being brought to the new game, though Nuketown was the only one scheduled to come after launch.
We’re still waiting for more details, but presumably Nuketown will arrive as an update rather than paid DLC.
